Amanda Bynes is making progress each and every day, and her mom Lynn as been praised by the judge overseeing her case for helping facilitate that.
Lynn Bynes became conservator during the troubled star's darkest hours after she started a fire in a neighbor's driveway and soaked her dog in gasoline.
Amanda Bynes was diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, spending three months receiving in-patient treatment for her obvious, severe mental issues.
She's been released into her parents' care, however, and apparently it's going well there, as evidenced by Lynn and Rick Bynes' appearance in court Tuesday.
Lynn was appointed conservator of Amanda's estate, making her the shot-caller when it comes to her health care, finances and overall well being.
Britney Spears' father, Jamie, was famously appointed to this same role following her meltdown in 2007-08, and the pop icon really turned things around.
Can Amanda do the same? It's too soon to tell, but things are trending in the right direction. Of that there is no doubt, based on everything we've read.
In Oxnard to sort out Lynn's job as conservator, the judge made it short and sweet when assessing the progress, saying, "Good job, Mrs. Bynes. Well done."
Amanda is now living at her parents' home in Thousand Oaks, Calif., and is attending fashion design classes in the O.C., out of the public eye (fortunately).
Here's hoping her wildest, darkest days are behind her for good!
